Personal Injury Trusts
Many claimants of personal injury and medical negligence damages worry about the effect that their award will have on their State Benefits or State funded care, long before the award is actually made. It is a little known fact that such damages can be settled to "trust" and will be completely ignored for benefits purposes.
In most cases, the claimant can have full access to the claim proceeds. After all, what would be the point in pursuing a claim for damages only to result in either a total loss of state benefits or an inability to spend or access the money.
We have specialist advisors that advise claimant solicitors and their clients about the appropriateness of a personal injury trust and the deposit or investment of any successful claim, irrespective of the amount. As with all of our services, we will not charge any fee for an initial meeting or discussion.
